Kent Coastline Walk

333 km / 207 miles

E Sussex, Kent, Medway
A complete end-to-end traverse of the diverse Kent coastline with its key role in Britain's maritime and wartime history, and including the Isle of Sheppey circuit and an optional visit to the Isle of Grain.

From Dungeness and Romney Marsh, Hythe and Folkestone are passed to reach historic Dover harbour and the White Cliffs, then via Deal to Sandwich and its famous seaside golf links to Pegwell Bay, and around the Thanet coast with the resorts of Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Margate and Herne Bay, and on to the Isle of Sheppey to the Medway towns, and finally past the Dartford QEII river bridge crossing.

Much of the walking is relatively flat and there are many good public transport links. The many estuarine and mudflat areas abound in birdlife. Care should be taken to check the tides on the low-lying parts of the route.

Major sections of this coast are developed for seaside recreation and accommodation and there is much in the way of industrial infrastructure and key continental transport links on view.
